Hello! I'm totally new to this challenge and this group. HELP! My weigh in day is Monday, so even though it's still December, should I go ahead and post? Also, how do I bookmark this page?
On a side note, I just got back from vacation - only 6 days - but I am up 3 pounds!

I - seriously had some good thoughts today surrounding my irritating and irksome night eating. So, years ago, I used to plan a 9ish or so PM snack, usually a slice of no sugar added cake and a decaf coffee. It was so delightful and I looked forward to it and it worked a dream for a very long time. I used to be very flexible with myself and do what worked in the moment and figure out what needed to be re-worked when that quit working. Fast forward many years and lessons later to my issue of off-plan eating at night these days. While walking and listening to my podcast, a tiny wisp of a voice tapped on my mental shoulder and asked....why not plan it and then it won't be off-plan? Huh?? Wha-whuuut??? OMG, historical Maria, you were like some freaking genius (yes, self-congratulatory shout out)! Whywhywhy have I been cramming the square peg into the round hole and complaining like a BOSS about the peg and all its craziness? Good grief, Charlie Brown - seriously. Ok, I planned and prelogged a bowl of bran cereal with almond milk as a snack tonight. Yes - I am older now than the cake and coffee Maria, back in the day!! => I also happen to adore wheat bran cereal.
Second....yay me. I have never, pretty darn certain, had a December during which I actually....lost weight. OMG - why have I not celebrated this milestone in my life? Guess I was too busy cramming the peg with what I perceived as an unnatural shape to comply with a hole that was clearly not of the same dimensions. Too busy counting leaves on the tree and missed how many are in the forest.
I'm telling you that both of the above events, and types of events, have the capacity to derail me, and those kinds of things have so many, many times. Getting short-sighted and not celebrating what I have done well and then only when I have gained back weight was I able to recognize what I had accomplished. I really needed that guardian angel today.
Thank you to all who are the Slimpossibles - it has been an amazing several months since I joined and I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that being a part of this group has been one of the most valuable tools in my tool belt in my journey. =>

Exercise: Day one of LIIFT 4, upper body weights and cardio. My arms are like jello!!
Am I the only one that has no idea what day it is anymore? Having this week off from work is wonderful but it throws my whole schedule off. Plus, being sick didn't help. I am all better today and thankful for a clear head and nose!
I love the vision for 2020 challenge and will respond tomorrow with what my goals are for the coming year.
